Reduce, Reuse, React — JavaScript January

  • Briefly, it takes two arrays: (the string constants ) and (the templated string values that need to be encoded ).
  • It is passed an array of strings, but what I’m calling an array of values, is actually a variable number of arguments.
  • I’m using ES6 “rest” syntax to convert the arguments into an array of values.
  • When we reduce over strings, the zeroth element of the strings array is passed as partialUri and iteration starts with the first element, and so on.
  • It’s a special form of the ES6 template literal that we used above, but it allows us to process it with a function.

A while back while writing a React application that hit a REST endpoint, I wrote a little utility to build a properly encoded Uri path. At the time, I didn’t think much about it. It did the job and I moved on.

Stack Overflow: ReactJS and Docker in great demand, Go not so much

#ReactJS And #Docker In Great Demand, Go Not So Much  #javascript #containers #DevOps

  • Yes, knowing how to use ReactJS, Docker, Ansible and Apache Spark will help you find a job faster but if WordPress is on your list of skills, you shouldn’t get your hopes up too high.
  • Developers who know their way around the cloud (back end) or have iOS, Android or DBA (MySQL) skills are in luck; these areas are all hungry for qualified candidates.
  • There are a lot of developers with WordPress skills and not enough companies that need them.
  • Although specialization is important, as John Z. Sonmez, author of Soft Skills: The software developer’s life manual wrote in an article for JAXenter, developers should have a wide variety of skills.
  • However, you also need to understand that your coding skills are just the beginning of what most companies are looking for in a programming recruit.

Stack Overflow looked at targeting options for employers on Stack Overflow Jobs used by 200+ companies since early 2015.

How to Set Up Webpack Image Loader

How to Set Up Webpack Image Loader:  #ReactJS

  • The next part of the process involves telling Webpack to use the loader we just installed.
  • We can use a loader to take our images and make them available in our minified js file.
  • $/, exclude: /(node_modules|bower_components)/, loader: ‘babel-loader’, }, { test: /\.
  • Notice that we’ve added a comma after our first loader, and added a second loader that now tests for jpeg, png, gif, and svg files.
  • As described in the Webpack docs , a loader transforms files written in a specific programming language into JavaScript.
